Does music make you feel things? Like, anything at all? If not, you might be a sociopath! If so, this might be the podcast for you! Join hosts Joel Spence and Deborah Tarica each week as they invite someone they think is very very fantastic, to pick an album that is very very important to them. Together, they listen to that album and go back in time to understand what it means to that particular guest and how it helped make them who they are today. Was it a rough year in junior high? Maybe playing in the background the night they met their soul mate? Just a damn good album? Guess you'll have to listen to find out!

Enjoyable because it is personal!
Episode one sets the tone for a podcast that I believe is going to be a wonderful listen because the hosts create an open environment for the guests to share their personal responses to music they love.
I’m not a musician yet love music and I’ve created a Spotify playlist dedicated to this podcast because regardless of my own taste I like giving albums a full listen and this podcast is a great way to let some tunes into my life.
The hosts bring a personal and knowledgeable touch to the conversation!
Dang, what a great podcast!
I love this podcast, it's fun and interesting and the hosts give the impression you're hanging out with them. Cool insights into the great guests and the albums people are passionate about.
Music is Magic
Love hearing guests dive deep into one album and really be forced to talk about their attachment to them.
